PNCA’s Low-Residency MFA is organized to be an innovative hybrid of an MFA degree and an artist residency. The low-residency program has a longer degree-completion times (3 years), flexible schedules, intensive residency periods, lower cost of attendance, and the distance-learning component, which does not require students to permanently relocate. Furthermore, the program is interdisciplinary, offering artists of all media and stages of their development the opportunity to refine their vision

The Luminary is excited to announce the seven artists, collectives, and practitioners to be in-residence this summer and fall: Anaïs Duplan, Abigail Lucien, Related Tactics, Andrea Yarbrough, Alden Burke, Emily Gastineau, Aeron Bergman and Alejandra Salinas.
